    Should I just say @#*& it and sand the bloody neck down??

    If you think that neck is huge, you must like pretty thin necks. Be careful, it's 50:50 that you sand right into the truss rod channel and ruin the whole neck. Then you have a $2k repair on top of everything else you have in the guitar. :cheers:

    If Clapton, Page, Bloomfield and Green...

    "If Clapton, Page, Bloomfield and Green... would have played '54 Les Pauls..." What if... what if... what if... As my Mom used to say "... and if a frog had wings, he wouldn't bump his azz when he jumps". :cheers:

    Watch This Before You Spend A Quarter Million On That Burst

    No, IMO his main motivation was to get a REAL Burst! I think we all have varying degrees of FOFU - Fear Of F'ing Up. Buying anything - house, car, couch, washing machine - and then finding out that you overpaid by 50% to 10,000%, constitutes F'ing Up to most of us. No matter how nice the thing...

    Jimmy Page ... History of his Guitars !!!

    "The amplifiers will be available throughout 2019 and a standard model will follow later in the year." Translation: There's a production run to be made later in the year after all the 500 Page-signed ones are sold.

    Watch This Before You Spend A Quarter Million On That Burst

    Hey - it was basically an ad for their services, a chance to show off a little, and give a PSA for vintage buyers to be proactive in seeking expert advice. Buyer beware. I don't think it was meant to be an exhaustive explanation of every nuance and variation.

    Watch This Before You Spend A Quarter Million On That Burst

    1 easy thing I noticed is where he said all Bursts have perfect center-seamed tops - not they don't! Many Bursts have the seam drifting towards the D string or the G string instead of perfectly centered between them.

    Lp special 1959 tv yellow production # However, AFAIK there is no breakout of how many were red and how many were yellow. I *think* the red were more common. :cheers:
